Program Notes

A Prelude to the Shining Day was written for Noda Junior High School Concert Band, Kawagoe, Japan, for the 10th anniversary of their foundation, and premiered in April 1992 under the direction of Masato Sato. The title of the piece suggests that it was written as a concert opener; thus it is designed as a fanfare. This piece requires three trumpets and three trombones on a balcony creating an antiphonal effect with the instruments on stage. The piece consists of three sections; the fanfare motif and lyrical melody of the middle section are combined in conclusion.
